Karlovy Vary to honor Glover, Quaid

Lloyd, Mikhalkov to attend event

The 43rd Karlovy Vary Film Festival opens in the Czech Republic Friday with a batch of last-minute star guests added to a list that already includes Robert De Niro.

Danny Glover — who appears in two films in the Horizons sidebar, John Sayles’ “Honeydripper” and Michel Gondry’s “Be Kind Rewind” — will receive an award given to actors, directors and producers who have contributed in a fundamental way to the development of contemporary world film.

Randy Quaid, who earned an Oscar nomination for supporting actor, a BAFTA nom and Golden Globe nom for his 1973 breakout role opposite Jack Nicholson in Hal Ashby’s “The Last Detail,” will present screenings of the film in the second edition of the fest’s New Hollywood section.

Helmer Phyllida Lloyd will be at the screening of her “Mamma Mia!,” which closes the fest on July 12, and Russian filmmaker Nikita Mikhalkov will introduce his film “12,” a Chechnya-set adaptation of Sidney Lumet’s 1957 courtroom drama “Twelve Angry Men.”
